September 24 | 12-2pm | In-Person | Bowne & Co. | Free
Finish Climate Week NYC 2022 with the South Street Seaport Museum by giving shape to your voice in a poster workshop outdoors on the cobblestones in front of 211 Water Street on Saturday, September 24. Share the ways you have personally chosen to combat climate change by making a poster celebrating your climate-friendly decisions, no matter how big or how small!
Bowne & Co. printers will use antique 19th and 20th century equipment from the Seaport Museum’s working printing collection to create contemporary ephemera with climate change awareness messages. Prompts will be provided for visitors to add their own ideas on how to combat climate change. Participants will be invited to take their work home as a free memento of their visit, or to leave their work at Bowne & Co. to be hung in the storefront windows as a visible call to action for climate change awareness to the Seaport community.

Bowne & Co.
Established in 1775, Bowne & Co. is New York’s oldest operating business under the same name. Using seven historic presses from the Museum’s working collection, our resident printers continue the age-old tradition of job (or small batch) printing, creating individual designs using custom plates or historic fonts.
